In the Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) directed film – originally titled I’m With Cancer and then Live With It – JoGo plays Adam, a 27-year-old radio writer who is diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer. Rogen plays his friend Kyle, who along with his mother (Angelica Huston) and therapist (Anna Kendrick) help Adam come to terms with his diagnosis and realise what is most important in his life.
The dramedy is based on writer Will Reiser’s real life experiences and the trailer looks to deliver the goods. From shaving Adam’s head, to trying ‘I have cancer’ as a pick up line, 50/50 seems to balance the drama and comedy showing there can be a funny side to a very serious disease.
